Watercolor on Canvas

Another Mackinac Island Scene
It is cold and snowy again today. It felt great to paint this door from some sketches and photographs from last summer. It is almost the middle of April, and we have another weather warning for the next 24 hours - for snow.

I am getting ready for a two day watercolor workshop using clayboard, watercolor canvas, Yupo, and bristol board. I wanted to make sure I had a decent painting on each one of the surfaces for examples. I have never done very much on watercolor canvas, and now I think it is my favorite thing to paint on! I don't want to influence anyone ahead of time - I am interested to see what the class thinks when they get painting.

Oooh - that is just what I needed! I am stuck here in snowy Indiana and your summery scene has given me hope! Can't wait to get up North this summer and enjoy it with you in person!

Hi Cathy, This is nice! Don't forget you can draw on the watercolor canvas with the waterproof micron pen. It worked for me! Do you stretch that stuff? mj lemieur
